Just in time for their upcoming Baltic tour with French grinding, powerviolent, nihilistic chaotic chardcore / metal act PILORI, Tallinn, Estonia based bleak crust hardcore metallers minus.mensch are back with a vicious new EP “Death Cult“, premiering right here, with a special commentary from the band below.
Comments the band’s drummer Alex: “The lyrics for this EP were written even before the war, and when all the events began to take place, we became uncomfortable with how prophetic the lyrics turned out to be (in the original I am from Russia, Saratov district and moved to Estonia, Tallinn in July 2019).”
Written with a rough understanding of the internal processes in Russia, “Death Cult” brings in a maelstrom of concentrated hatred under the wrapper of the Swedish HM-2 sound and production from one of the best producers in Sweden, Ulf Blomberg.
Touching on the injusticis of the world order and personal problems, this EP marks the most anti-war offering in the band’s discography and every song literally screams about it. The title itself, “Death Cult”, reflects, what Alex describes, as “the place where I once lived and dreamed has turned into.”
This EP was recorded in Tallinn with Pjotr Latõshev, Vitaly Ball and mixed/mastered by Ulf Blomberg in Hobo Records, 2022.
Catch minus.mensch live on tour with Pilori this April. Also, be sure to give a listen to the band’s latest split release with NASKA and PECHORA.
